He is a performance-driven structural engineer with a wide-ranging background in both structural and geotechnical engineering. He has served in deferent capacities ranging from a detailed analysis of existing bridges, buildings, and utility lines in the vicinity of Near Surface Structures (NSS) construction sites, geo-mechanical modeling of staged excavations. His most recent work includes developing settlement contours in the vicinity of near surface structures incorporating computer aided geotechnical modeling of support of excavation system (River Renew Project). Development of TBM induced settlement contours along the tunnel (River Renew Project). Geo-mechanical modeling of shafts and other near surface structures at multiple construction sites (NEBT Project). Detailed analysis of buildings and utility lines in the vicinity of near surface structures (NEBT Project). Development of full-scale structural models for DDOT and WMATA bridges impacted by underground construction activities (NEBT Project). Analysis of multiple piled bridges located within the zone of influence of the construction activities (NEBT Project). Removal of temporary transit deck (Crenshaw/Lax transit corridor project). His Ph.D. research project was focused on the seismic analysis of RC bridge columns. Through the application of Nonlinear Static Analysis (NSA), Nonlinear Time- History Analysis, Incremental Dynamic Analysis (IDA), and reliability analysis of structures, he has investigated the stability of slender RC bridge columns. He also has a great interest in structural monitoring, forensic engineering, and computer programming.
In this Midas Webinar Session, our Expert Engineer Parsa Heydarpour from Subsurface and Tunnel Engineering shared his knowledge on how to do a comparative analysis between three SOE Design approaches – Traditional, 3D FEA, and 2D FEA – for a conventional shaft structure, to showcase key advantages and limitations of each design.
In this Midas Workshop Session, our Expert Engineer Parsa Heydarpour from Subsurface and Tunnel Engineering shared his knowledge about Shaft Excavation With Corrugated Metal Sheets and Steel Ribs (with and without dewatering).
